MADISON, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - A southern Indiana mother and her boyfriend are accused of torturing her three-year-old son.
Prosecutors say Andrew Richards and Jessica Carder used "pliers" to pull two teeth and several toe nails off the child.
The boy is now with his biological father's family while Richards and Carder face felony battery and confinement charges.
At a hearing Monday Richards said he is innocent and was only helping the child with a loose tooth.
